is the frontinac for sale?
what would u expect the price would be?
I am just starting with the same model Frontenac. Hope to have it home by next week. Hoping I don't need too many Fronty only parts as I'm sure they are getting hard to find.
Not a bad catch for a "not a Ford guy". When did you start seeing the light? Oops! I just caught myself responding to an eight year old thread
I've always been intrigued by Canadian only cars. I have had lots of Fords to resell but I don't think this one will get away. Does anyone know if just the Frontenacs had this style of upholstery, looks like cattle brands.
It looks like hyrogliphics copied from some ancient Inca temple
This one even has a Ford and not Chevy engine
And it will stay that way.
The pun was directed at Canadian Pontiacs for using Chevy engines, among other parts. Just found this
I realize this is an old thread ... but I just joined today to let you know ......
I had the exact same Frontenac station wagon at one time .... same colors , everything ... (not sure about the roof rack though) .... makes me wonder if it was mine ... very few built ... just over 700
It was around 1973 , Portage La Prairie , Manitoba ... I bought it used and in excellent condition except the red paint started to fade a bit ... loved the car , tight and solid , excellent all-round visibility with all those windows ... and great fuel mileage with that tiny 6 cylinder.
I sold it a few years later for the reason it was freezing cold in the winters .... we were going through a mini-ice-age in the 1970's ... the fellow I sold it to draped a plastic sheet behind the seat and said he ran the heater fan on low and everything stayed warm .... made sense to me ... I ran the fan on high and the cold air blast overcame the heater core temps.
He loved the car and babied it , never even a scratch or dent , he polished the paint and it shined up a bit. He is still around and I should contact him to see what he eventually did with it .... I know he headed west at one time but do not know what he was driving.
Anyway .... thank you for preserving that car ... numbers wise you have something very rare.
Welcome ArnieM888. Glad you found us. Why not start your own thread here on the Welcome wagon and introduce yourself.
Thanks ... will do in a day or two ... was never really a "station wagon guy" but when I look back I have had at least 5.
